Buying or selling a home can be stressful. Your real estate agent's job is to be there to guide you through the process and make it easier. My number one priority is looking out for my clients and making sure everyone involved in the process is doing their job. There are a lot of people involved in a home sale. You have lenders, title officers, other agents, and the list goes on. I am the one directing the show, making sure deadlines are met and nothing gets overlooked.
It is exciting to open a new chapter in life and should be fun. I love getting to be a part of people’s lives as they embark on a new adventure. Whether you’re getting into your first house or sending the kids off to college and moving out of the burbs to get into the bungalow on the beach you’ve been dreaming of for years let me be there to help you figure it out. So, even if you’re just starting to put together a plan for what you’d like to do I am happy to sit down and walk through the details with you.
Here’s a little about me personally (so you know who you're working with.) The road that lead me to life on the beach with my wife Emily and two young boys (Tommy and Bruce) was a little less than traditional. I grew up in Alaska with all the bear stories and grand adventures a kid could ever hope for. That lead to a career as a wildland firefighter on a USFS Hotshot crew based out of Eastern Oregon. Which just so happened to be where I met my wife, side by side digging fire line. We decided to “settle down” which for us was moving back to Alaska to start a guided fishing business on the Kenai Peninsula. After a number of years making my office my seat behind the wheel of a guide boat we were compelled to start over in Portland Oregon to raise our kids close to their mom’s family. But as it turned out city life just did not stick for us and we were drawn to the shores of the Oregon Coast where we now call home. Our family’s adventurous spirit lives on today through our love of surfing, backpacking along the coastal trails, and in my newly found passion of ultra marathons. I’m currently training for my 2nd 100-mile ultra marathon and can usually be found on the trails of Cape Perpetua when not busy helping clients buy and sell homes on the Central Oregon Coast.
Life is short, buy the beach house!
